Yes, tucked under; I didn't want to get into removing glass.

I am selling it. It's just too nice to sit outside, and I'm out of garage space. I have it on bringatrailer.com. Lowered Tuesday to $4 ...

The car is back from the upholstery shop. In general the pre-made Australian kit fits and looks good. Not all the upholsterer's work is stellar, but I didn't want to pay big money either for installat ...

Yes, I bought it from the Australian guys. Showed up right away, and looks OK, but haven't tried to fit yet. Current headliner does have that pattern, new replacement is more generic with a fine peb ...

I believe it was on BringaTrailer.com, not ebay. I bought it off the California Melee at the same time it was on BaT.

Just as an update, I've sorted the car's immediate problems (throttle linkage, alt mount, air filter setup, steering slop and alignment), plus valve adjustment, timing (which was about 15 degrees reta ...

I saw this car on the California Melee email list, but it was also posted to bringatrailer.com. Garm was not the guy I bought if from.

I bought this Mk II Deluxe a couple weeks ago through a guy on the California Melee list. One owner from new, used as a daily driver around LA. Well cared for, with some minor bodging on mechanical i ...

My new 68 Cortina Deluxe (1600 Kent engine, single-throat Autolite carb) has a very jury-rigged linkage between the gas pedal end and the throttle bar extension coming off the carb. It's a wonder it s ...
